I think it is a bug, but I don't think the scenario is exactly as you

I think the second message from the same user arrives after you go to
the pending requests page but before you submit the approval.

Then you submit the approval from the summary page which is an approval
for all messages from that user, and the second message gets the same
action as the one you saw.

If this is the case, you can avoid the problem by clicking the number
next to the Subject:, or clicking the "view all messages from
<address>" link to get the message detailed view and approve the
message(s) from there.

The underlying problem is that the data posted from the summary page
says "apply the selected action to all messages from this user" rather
than "apply the selected action to all messages from this user that
were displayed on the page".
